Whoa, what’s going on here?
Are they outside this time of year? And what happened to the fire…..?
Whoa! an interesting strip today. What, Ludwig didn’t lay around in a funny position such that we could all be expected to fall down laughing?
I’ll always toast to not being dead.
Some labors are more laborious than others.Some rejoiceSome bemoanBeing the son of Arlo, Gene …
Someone told me: It’s better to be seen than to be viewed.
They are looking more and more like young Arlo and Janis. A new strip? Replacements?
Response to comments here about Gene being dead?
@ Varnes: Yes, a rare “misfire” by Jimmy.
Not a misfire, if they are on the Gulf Coast, say……fires outside on chilly nights are wonderful, btw…
@Dr McCoyI thought Gene was Janis when I first looked at the strip.
Maybe the fire’s metaphoric. Mary Lou’s enthusiasm for needed income during this part of the year has put out the fire of Gene’s complaining. At the same time, the fire could represent the “fires of hell” to those whose income drops this time of year, and Mary Lou’s statement puts out those fires. Or, perhaps, it’s the burning of Gene’s sore muscles, and this “up-side” to the hard work has doused the burning of Gene’s muscles with “good news” that “makes it all worth the effort” and acts as balm on his aches.
